Plant Cell and Molecular Biology
This concentration is for students interested in gaining a fundamental understanding of basic cellular and molecular mechanisms responsible for how plants grow, develop and function in nature. The curriculum provides a broad background in plant sciences from molecular to cellular to organismal levels. Students have the opportunity to carry out undergraduate research with a faculty member in their area of interest.
The Plant Cell and Molecular Biology concentration is a good choice for students preparing for careers with biotechnology and plant breeding companies, life science research in companies, universities or government agencies, and continuing study for an advanced degree in graduate school.
